INF Robotics is developing the Rudy assistive robot that will act as a healthcare companion for seniors, disabled and wounded warriors.
The Rudy assistive robot from INF Robotics wants to help the elderly, war veterans and people with disabilities age in place.
Rudy reminds people to take medications, carries things, interacts socially, and play games with people via its screen. The Rudy assistive robot also offers telemedicine capabilities for doctors and caregivers to check in remotely. INF Robotics also partnered with AlertOne Services so the Rudy assistive robot can call for help during emergencies.
INF Robotics plans to sell the Rudy assistive robot for $5,000 per unit. However, the company is also seeking reimbursement through Medicare and Medicaid. It says this will make Rudy available at “little to no cost to the user.”
